Im a bit of a newbie to the forums so have posted this in the beginners section, but I was wondering what signs there are of overtraining?
I have read in a lot of articles about how people shouldnt worry about overtraining because very few lifters reach this point. I lift 5/6 days a week and spend most of my time in the gym on big compound movements. I squat once a week and deadlift on another session. I also try and run weekly and occasionally swim. From time to time I just feel fucked all over and take a couple of days off completely, but most days i have some soreness from a previous session. If im tired I will reduce the number of sets in my workout for that day but my intensity is always high.
I know it's difficult to tell whether im overdoing it from this information, but when and how should I slow down and take time off? Any help would be appreciated.
